    The body count is now higher and Assad seems to be gaining an upper hand. Maybe Egypt will lend a hand now that the Generals are officially back in charge. Who knows?

    Yeah, a year ago or even six months ago we could have sent the rebels supplies and weapons and did some good. Now it is probably too late. Both Assad seems to be stronger and Al Qaeda is assassinating the rebel leaders. Even if Assad does fall, it won’t be a boon for the West or much improvement for the people.

    Appeasement and “Don’t get involved” has been the western politician’s response since before WWII.

    It’s a “No Win”, d*amned if you do, d*amned if you don’t. “Internal affairs of another country” is used to justify atrocities since before recorded history. A weak US leader (lame duck, no less) with no military experience? What can the United States expect? not much.

    Agreed! We should have marched in as we did in Korea, ’Nam, Iraq and Afghanistan… Those adventures all went so well, and the bad guys all learned to behave!

    How about a new policy? We only go to war with countries that more than 1/2 of all Americans can find on a map?

    We should have stayed out of the middle east back in the 1990’s when g h w bush sent our troops to invade Iraq. bush then illegally encouraged the people of Iraq to rise up against their “leader” and did nothing to help them when they did and got slaughtered. (It is against international law to tell people to rise up against their government). cheney/shrub/rummy should be tried in the International Criminal Court for their illegal invasions in 2003.

    There is a HUGE pile of issues that those 3 should be prosecuted for

    when g h w bush sent our troops ..
    That was shrub’s father — president from 1989 1993 sent troops to middle east after Iraq invaded Kuwait. Desert Storm operations lasted some 6 months.
    Shrub (president 2001 – 2009) is the one who invaded Afghanistan and Iraq and started overthrowing foreign governments.
    While I hold no brief for someone who says "Read my lips -
    no new taxes" and then signs a whopping tax increase into law the next year, he didn’t do what his son (of a B) did.

    Yep, really learned to behave they did alright….. Learned to behave so well even got a picture taken with a certain Senator. That said he could always spot a terrorist. Except when a camera is pointing in his direction….

    So, Assad is “imigrated” to the U.S. to become another bar tender? Could happen!

    President Lincoln politely refused the aid of Russia during our own Civil War (I) and it isn’t a good idea to allow foreign elements. The rebels have all kinds of foreigners involved that they have no control over.

    @SUSAN NEWMAN

    Bother Israel? What about Israel threatening anyone within missile range of its nuclear arsenal? Including Iran who hasn’t been working on nuclear weapons since the edict of 2003. yet that self serving fiction that they are by crazed paranoids in Israel and USA.

    The USA has been involved in the Middle East since at least the late 1940’s. Europe for far longer. The very make up of the Middle East today are based on the arbitrary boundaries set up by the UK & France.
